The 1 Thing Missing from Disney’s Big Hero 6 – #BigHero6Event

Big Hero 6 is Walt Disney Animation Studios 54th feature film.  Disney has a proven formula for success at the box office. However, that formula has been tweaked for Big Hero 6 and there is something missing from the movie.

What’s missing is a singing princess.  As a matter of fact there are no traditional broadway type songs, there is no princess in distress and absolutely no frozen fractals.

What Big Hero 6 does have is heart and lots of it, Disney can still pull at your heartstrings without a singing snowman.

Big Hero 6 is a story of friendship, teamwork and moving forward after the loss of a loved one.  It is more than a movie about a boy and his robot.  The movie isn’t just for boys or just for girls; it is a movie for everyone.  I have two girls ages 4 and 9 and they loved the movie.

The movie is smart, funny and well written.  At its core it deals with the grieving process and reminds us that after loosing a loved one they are still with us in our heart.  The movie shows us that it is important to move forward and heal your own spirit so you can honor the memory of a loved one.

  1. I’m going to be blunt. Thank Heavens Disney didn’t include a singing princess. I’m tired of all of these movies being about princesses and their quest for this and that. It’s nice to head to a movie with some heart and soul that doesn’t involve a coronation nor does it involve anything that has to do with magic of any sort-except the kind that comes from inside you and makes you brave. Frankly, I can now take my son to a movie from Disney and not have to bite my tongue about a non-self rescuing princess..and have some superhero fun!
